Find the Keys The first part of the Adventure where you will master the keys. You will be typing quickly and properly by the time you reach the Kingdom of Eaz. This course teaches correct finger positioning and associated keys of the alpha/numeric keyboard in ten structured lessons. This is the default course and is the recommended starting point. Royal Challenge This course will build your speed and accuracy. Wise Fella will give you challenges which will take Kewala into the wild to catch the ten finger speed master. This is only for you if you have found the Kingdom of Eaz or you can already type without looking at the keyboard. The lesson parts in Royal Challenge alternate between improving your speed and improving your accuracy. The speed challenges are designed to help you reach your touch typing/keyboarding goal and will not stop you if you make a mistake. The accuracy challenges are designed to improve your accuracy and make you press the correct key to continue with the challenge.
